"Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges!"


Field & Stream
Magazine had an annual fishing contest that began in 1911. They presented these honor and award badges for fishermen and hunters from 1934 through 1977. The Award badges were part of their annual contest.

Drexel Grapevine Antiques has quite a collection. LINK

Yep,`General Sherman'. They say he's five hundred pounds of bottom-dwelling fury, don't you know. No one knows how old he is, but if you ask me (and most people do), he's hundred years if he's a day.

And uh no one's ever caught him?

Well, one fella came close.Went by the name of Homer.  Seven feet tall he was, with arms like tree trunks.  His eyes were like steel, cold, hard. Had a shock of hair, red like the fires of Hell.
